Archie’s Echo was discovered at the New Holland Sales auction in 2015 by Kelsey Parisi of Turning for Home Partner Farm ReeLee Restarting & Training. Turning for Home, Parx Racing’s Director of Racing Sam Elliott & Old Friends came together to ultimately save Archie from a slaughter kill pen. Ironically, Archie’s former racing trainer had relocated to Parx Racing so on his way down to Old Friends (after his quarantine), we were able to plan a stopover at Parx so that the trainer could see him one last time.
